10. Take Inventory Of Yourself
What do you want out of a relationship at this age? How do you feel about this person, and how do they make you feel when you're together? Do you feel secure, happy, confident? Do they let you be your true self, or do you feel like you have to put on a front so they approve of you? Are you compromising anything while being with them?

In order to find out the answers to all of these tricky questions, take out a notebook and write all of your thoughts down. Putting them onto paper actualizes them and makes it harder to ignore your feelings, and it will help you capture a clearer picture of what you're feeling (especially if you're unsure about dating again.) Take inventory of your feelings and see if this is the right relationship for you.
